Easy to set up quickly in the car via a simple cradle with windscreen plastic suckers. Accurate speedometer reading. Fairly clear screen.
Expensive to buy and a rip off for the camera updates. Doesn't work in some makes of car. Blackspot detection poor. Cheap monochrome screen. Far too complex and dangerous to use when driving for storing your own data. PC only software.
I bought this for myself and a Snooper Syrius for a present and found that the Syrius for £50 more wiped the floor with the Road Angel plus. Its camera and blackspot detection were far more accurate than the extremely disappointing Road Angel. The voice and sounds on the Road Angel are annoying. Due to the complex nature of storing your own blackspot information, the unit hardly ever gets accurate updates via the web. Do not buy this flimsy unit. Most sat navs do more than this now.
